SIROCCO™ SE Series multiviscosity, synthetic ester compressor oil for rotary screw compressors has a service life of up to 8,000 hrs (about one year of constant compressor operation), says the manufacturer. According to the company, the low friction design characteristics of this synthetic oil will result in a 3% to 8% reduction in the energy required to operate the compressor, compared to mineral-based lubricants. It is highly resistant to water, preventing damaging oil/water emulsions and allowing longer lubricant life and ease of water removal from the sump, says the manufacturer.
